Delhi Weather: 

The National Capital is expected to witness light rain and cloudy sky on Monday, as per the India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast. The minimum temperature on Monday is likely to be 26 degrees Celsius (°C) while the temperature is predicted to reach 40°C.

The minimum temperature on Sunday was 24°C- four degrees below normal and therefore the maximum temperature was 38.1°C- two degrees below normal.

North- East Weather: 

Monsoon has reached into most parts of central Arabian Sea, many parts of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Telangana, whole of Tamil Nadu, parts of Andhra Pradesh, parts of central Bay of Bengal and northeast Bay of Bengal, all northeastern states (Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh), most parts of sub- Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim on Sunday, 4-5 days in advance.

“Monsoon is advancing very well. It has advanced to Sikkim and parts of Maharashtra 4 to 5 days in advance. The monsoon flow is strong and southwesterly winds have picked up on a large scale,” said RK Jenamani, Senior Scientist, National Weather Forecasting Centre.

Monsoon is expected to build up further as a ‘monsoon low’ or a low pressure area is likely to form over north Bay of Bengal on June 11.

“Under the influence of that monsoon low, we are expecting monsoon to be vigorous and cover most of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and West Bengal- all of east India by June 13. We are now getting very early indications that monsoon will reach western parts of the country also earlier than expected,” added Jenamani.

Heavy rainfall is predicted over Arunachal Pradesh on June 6 and 8; over Assam, Meghalaya, sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim on June 8 and 9; over Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura on June 6 and seven; over Odisha on June 8 and 9; over Gangetic West Bengal on June 10. Strong floor winds (25-35 kmph) are susceptible to prevail over plains of northwest India throughout June 8 to 10.
